Overall Rating: B+
Synopsis: A Shōnen comedy and fantasy series created by Shiro Ihara, Alice On Deadlines follows the misadventures of the Shinigami Lapan and the human Alice. In the book, shinigami are more like the ones featured in Bleach, than in Deathnote. They appear human, have a bureaucracy, and collect souls for the afterlife. They cannot travel to earth in their bodies however, so they must possess a soulless body.

Lapan is a degenerate shinigami who doesn't do his job and looks at porn

If you like pictures of girls in their underwear, this might be the manga for you! ... There doesn't seem to be much point to it, otherwise.

I forget exactly when I read this, I believe a few months ago.
This book was a $4 discount buy that I'd seen a million times browsing in stores, so I decided to get it.
The plot sounds much more interesting than it actually is. Alice and Lapan are lukewarm characters with little substance. Alice is shy and Lapan is way too horny. The majority of the book is Lapan using Alice's body to sexually harass her peers and, essentially, it's still not good enough to even be hentai. The pace is slow and unl

When I started this book I found it very confusing, I think its a Manga that should be read in one sitting not over a few days.

The cover artwork as usual was alot better than the book. As the book went along it began to flow.

Just as I was beginning to enjoy it, I reached the end of the book. I think I will have to read the next installment to see if I get anymore from this series.

I would recommend this book to people 16+ due to some of the topics covered in the book.

Since I mainly read super-violent manga, mystery manga, and the one shojo series I own and like, I thought the pervy humor in this book would spark my interests. Since I like reading mangas with shinigami, I decided to give Alice On Deadlines a try.

It was too much.

So, even though it has gore and shinigami, the perv factor greatly overwhelms them both. It's just not my cup of tea.

The main storyline was pretty funny but I just couldn't get over all of the girl on girl action. A little bit of that stuff doesn't usually bother me but there is just so much that I can't get over it. If the rest of the series is written without all of this in your face girl on girl action I think I would enjoy it but because of this first book I don't think I will be finding out.

I've had y eye on this for some time but the art just isn't good enough. All the SFX having to be translated for almost every panel is soooo annoying and the characters are just too similar. Too bad-I liked all the panty shots and pouty faces ;)

All I can say is the main character is a perv. I don't really think the story is going anywhere and it just seemed to be the same situation over and over again and then they add in some girls in their underwear. Seemed a little pointless to me.

I love this book so much!
The plot of a guy trapped in a girl's body just had me laughing all the time. Both Alice and Lapan are the greatest, and make a good duo. And well plus Lapan's stalker....she/he is cool too

Silly and tastelessly funny. This volume seemed to go by slow in build up but made up for it in panty-humour and silly gags along the main plot.

Cute play on sexual fantasies and love story. I did really love the art. Nothing super deep, but a fun light read.
